GLOBE Student Research Symposia (GLOBE SRS): Building Capacity and Community ...

NSF Awards: 1546713, 80NSSC18K0135

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Informal / multi-age

This video showcases the U.S. Regional GLOBE Student Research Symposia (SRS), which began in 2015 with funding from the National Science Foundation (Grant #1546713) and is currently funded by a grant from NASA (Grant #80NSSC18K0135) and Youth Learning As Citizen Environmental Scientists (YLACES).
Thus far, the project has provided 583 students with the opportunity to share their science research using GLOBE Program data collection at symposia events where they meet students from other states, discuss their research with scientists, and visit science-related venues to envision themselves in those locations pursuing a STEM career.
The GLOBE Program (sponsored by NASA, with support from the NSF, NOAA and the Department of State) is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process.
After participating in the Student Research Symposia, students’ self-efficacy increased for the science practices. Here is what student and teachers said about the event:
  • "[The scientific process] doesn't seem scary or impossible anymore." –SRS Student
  • “The SRS made me realize that science is fun, and there is so much to do within the science field.” -SRS Student
  • “It is good to learn from other students that we don't already know and just meet and talk to people of different backgrounds.” -SRS Student
  • “The students realize that they can contribute to the scientific community and that their research is important. They feel part of ‘Science.’” -SRS Teacher
